Stunning value for fans of lean, rustic mouthwatering wines. A great super-cheap stand-in for far more expensive old world chianti, burgundy etc.

As always, this is an outstanding value. Good backbone of acidity and tannin, with delicious dried cherry/tart red fruit. I tend to prefer the freshness of this over the more mature 09 that I had earlier this year. Certainly should keep a few years, but really nice now. $14 on release, now reduce to under $12. A steal. Tasted June 2016.

Very dry, living up to it's name of "black acid". Definitely needs to be paired with something fatty to eat.
